This was first time at this buffet but was well pleased with quality of food and service. We did not have to wait in line because we got there around 11 am.

Like everything in Vegas these days, the buffet seems a bit overpriced. There are quite a few good restaurants in Mandalay, so we probably wouldn't even have gone at all except we got discount coupons at Tix4Tonight. You pay $2 to get a 30% off coupon for an adult lunch or dinner. Regular price for adults is $22 for lunch... More

By far one of the Best in Vegas is the Bayside Buffet at Mandalay Bay. The selection as well as the presentation of the food is very good. Although we did see couples with children at the buffet, they were very well behaved. You can enjoy your meal and converse without the overtones of those around you.

Received a M Life comp for a breakfast/lunch buffet. The breakfast spread was vast and has all the staples, plus some. I had a fresh cooked omelet and a delicious flakey biscuit with gravy. Beautiful fresh berries and an entire yogurt station. Attentive service. Time we arrived crossed over to lunch - extremely disverse lunch - more like dinner options.... More

I have stayed many times at Mandalay Bay and in previous trips I left the buffet feeling disappointed of the quality of food. The food now has gone up in quality and tastes great. My only complaint is the line control its very frustrating to have to wait in line to pay, then wait in line to be seated, then... More

You're paying the average buffet price as other hotels on the strip. The food was really mediocre for the price.

This is one of the best buffets on the strip. They have a varied menu selection and it's all good, especially the salmon and crab legs. I usually have to walk through the buffet line twice before placing any food on my plate so I don't miss something wonderful. It's nicely laid out and easy to move around. Elegant, romantic... More

My room package included a food and beverage credit equal to the resort fee, I would rather not pay the resort fee rather than deal with the creative marketing ploy. On my last morning which was a week day, I went for a late breakfast to use up the remaining credit. It was about 10:30am and the restaurant was almost... More

Dinner buffet was very good with lots of choices. Comparable with some of the other buffets offered in Vegas. They offered a wide variety of good choices. Food was presented nicely, hot food was hot and cold food was cold. The service was friendly.

We don't usually like buffets, but we're quite impressed with this one! Didn't have a HUGE selection but what they had was tastey and replenished frequently, which is a MUST in buffets! The prime rib and crab legs are awesome and never ending. Crab is served hot or cold and butter is served in cups (no heated candles) but you... More
